CSS is Dead!

CSS is Dead!

comiCSS cartoon for March 20, 2023

This is the comic I coded this week for comiCSS. It is a silly joke drawn with HTML and CSS (you can see the source code here):

The design for this cartoon was inspired by two different drawings that I saw on Dribble:

I also created an animated version of the comic (available in Spanish, too!), I hope you enjoy it:

NOTE: The animation only plays once. You may need to click on the "Rerun" button in the bottom right corner.

It was actually a lot of fun trying to animate the drawing. I normally don’t do much animation, mostly just drawing –and, of course, laying out content and website styling, I mean from a creative perspective–. So it was quite a challenge, to be honest.

I liked the result, but I’m not fully sold on things like eye movement or how Death restarts walking. I need to explore the animation properties and try to create new things that move and behave more naturally.
